help front axle u bolt

so i bought a dual steering stabilizer from rough country, and it mounts using the factory axle u bolts, but there isnt enough thread left to install the bracket. So i bought 11 inch ones, is there a write up or does someone know how to change these out? I only have the swap the front ones out on either side of the truck. thanks in advance

info

I can scan and email the instructions out of Chiltons if you like. And yes you can do it on the ground you just need to support the frame and take the load off the spring!

thanks, i didnt even think to look in chiltons, only reason i was thinkin it would be different cause it has a shock relocation kit or something on her. It has a bracket that sits on top of the leaf springs that is held in place by the axle bolts, just wanted to make sure that if i start taking one off that this thing isnt gonna start shifting in place and turn into a giant pain. thanks again

it may not be the right way, but I've done this about 5 times on my truck( keep changing underside parts ) and I don't do anything but unbolt it and smack it out with a hammer( sometimes cut offwheel, if the nuts are rusted on ) and just use a hammer to gently tap them in, making sure not to mess up the threads.

yeah that sounds like what i had planned, hammer the crap outta it... the nuts are good ( not rusted) i found out the hard way that i needed longer ones when i took it all apart to mount the new stabilizer.
